custodian in the building that became the eyes and ears for the police and law enforcement. he was able to say where the sounds of the shooting were coming from. he was able to say when there was gunfire and silence at well. at one point he is confronted by responding offices and the dispatcher says tell them who you are, and he says custodian, when they realize, they say tell the dispatcher to get connecticut police here and the dispatcher says tell them their on their way. so there is so much that was going on and so much that was happening on so quickly as police try to determine exactly what was happening in the school that you hear the urgency and you realize the horror of what is going on unfolding not almost immediately but in stages as you hear them calling for the connecticut state police while they try to remain quiet and hidden. >> can you explain why we're not playing the tapes? >> a team of very smart people are listening to them, determining the value, determining what is news worthy. what is of value. clearly everyone, not just here at cnn but elsewhere wants to maintain the

civil war. >> and brianna keilar, if it does pass the house, the senate then has to sign it into law. are you getting any reaction yet from white house officials to this dole? >> we don't have any reaction from the white house yet at this point. i think they're waiting for the formal announcement of exactly what is in the deal and what is not in the deal. but i do think that president obama and white house officials are going to feel that this reenforces the strategy that he took during that battle with the government shutdown. that he wasn't going to give when it came to funding for the government or when it came to the debt ceiling. he wasn't going to give on obama care. he was in a little bit, you could argue, sort of intransjents. he said no, i'm not negotiating on this. and once this was all said and done in october, he said that he didn't think there was going to be another fight. so if that is the case, i think they're going to see that as justifying his strategy and that ultimate think did work. i will tell you, though, president obama has dedicated a lot of time to talking a

a federal law enforcement source who says of course there's a bit of nervousness but they think they are in good position here. you have support planes, groups that have already gone over, there will be plain clothes people in the crowd and all that. think of the fascinating moment for the former presidents in the sense you have jimmy carter who was president when the iran hostage drama played out. george w. bush called iran the axis of evil. president obama who is trying to negotiate what would be a historic breakthrough on the nuclear program, do they talk about that at all? when the former presidents talk, mostly we learn nothing because those are off the record communications. but boy, you would love to know if they exchange any notes or historical reflections or observations. but it's a big historic event and we will find out in bits and pieces after about the interaction between the presidents themselves. >> it would be interesting to see what if anything happens, because there will be representatives, high ranking officials from iran, for example, attending the memorial s

mandela even though he had a law degree and was quite privileged with his family background, chose to live here side by side, shoulder to shoulder with other black south africans who were also struggling through the ills of apartheid. behind me, you are hearing some of the similar statements robyn is hearing, songs from the struggle, songs in honor of nelson mandela. in a way, what people are doing here is thanking madiba for helping elevate many poor black south africans into the middle class by ushering in democracy and becoming the country's first democratically elected president. on this street today, you will find restaurants and bars and middle class south africans spending their disposable income in a place where it wouldn't have been possible decades ago. and indeed, this will also be the location of the first official memorial service for nelson mandela on tuesday at the stadium which is also significant because it was the last location he made an appearance in public during the closing ceremonies for the world cup. so as is true in many other locations in the country, these
